My name is Viktoria Schnaderbeck and I am an ambassador for Jambo Bukoba. This year, I was able to go to Tanzania and see the benefits of the organisation’s pilot WASH projects.
Most schools in Tanzania have no water, so the children – in most cases the girls – are sent to fetch water from water holes or other sources, a trip that can take many hours a day to complete. As a result, they miss classes at school and are often left too exhausted for their studies or other activities.Worse still, fetching water can be really dangerous. I watched as one young girl bravely climbed down a steep and rocky cliff side with a bucket in one hand. For us bystanders, it was unthinkable to do something so risky, but for her, it was about daily survival.

Thanks to the Jambo Bukoba WASH pilot projects undertaken in 2016 and 2017, more than 5,000 children now have water at their schools and have been taught the benefits of practicing hygiene. Your generosity and the cooperation and input of local communities in Tanzania were essential in achieving this success.
In 2018 and 2019, Jambo Bukoba would like to expand its WASH program to an additional 20 schools reaching up to 13,000 children. That’s a big goal and we welcome your support in helping us to achieve it. Even the smallest contribution can go a long way.
Thank you for your help
All the best,
